Friends I cannot believe that it’s 2015!!! In fact just writing that I first typed 2014! Meep! Goodbye ’14 and good riddance! But beyond the new year, the more important thing is that … ALBTALBS TURNS FOUR!!!! WHEE!! I just… things were crazy and I thought whatever and put out a call on social media, and Sasha White was totally awesome and all “hey I’ll play!” and I was like YAY! And this is what happened!
It’s ALBTALBS ANNIVERSARY!!!
Congratulations to Limecello for sticking with this, and giving us all a place to hang out. I’m thrilled to be part of the anniversary party, so Thanks for having me because I’ve got a question for y’all.
Is anyone else confused about why January is the start of the new year?
I’m sure there’s some scientific reason for it, but what I’m getting at is this. January isn’t really the start of anything, it’s the middle of winter, so why is it the start of a new year? Why not wait until May, and have May be the start of the new year, since that’s when everything is new and shiny after the snow melts and rain washes away the dust? That’s a new season, and a new beginning. Wouldn’t that make more sense as the start of a year?
I don’t always follow through with every thing..sort of like new years resolutions. Only I don’t make New Years resolutions anymore since I figured out I tend to make them all year long. They really should be new Season resolutions, don’t you think? I mean, I’m not the only one who does this all year long, am I?
Then again, new beginnings can really be any time you want them to be, can’t they? I mean, as a writer, I have a new beginning every time I start a new story. It’s not just the story that is new, because after more than a decade as a professional author, I’ve unintentionally developed a few rituals surrounding that beginning. While getting ready to start a new project, I clean my house, and clean my office, often rearranging furniture and organizing closets. It’s like spring cleaning, but I do it every couple of months. So there’s a few new beginnings there.
So, in light of this train of though I have a couple questions for you all.
1) Do you ever wonder why January is the start of the new year? or Do you know why January is the start of the new year?
2) Do you make new years resolutions?
3) Are you excited for 2015? If yes, why?
Let’s start this party off with a bang, hmm? Answer any one of these questions, or ask me a question, in the comments and be entered to win a $40 Gift Card for All Romance eBooks and OmniLit Books!! That’ll get your eReader loaded up a bit hmm?
